It is located on the territory of the Crimean Nature Reserve, on the edge of a rocky cliff above the Gurzuf Valley, at an altitude of more than 1.4 thousand meters (4,600 ft.) above sea level. Strong winds (up to 40 m/s) often blow there. 

The rotunda was installed in 1956. It is a circular white stone colonnade about 4 meters in diameter, covered by a dome. The height of it is 6 meters. On its floor there is a mosaic depicting a wind rose diagram. It offers panoramic views of the South Coast: Gurzuf, Partenit, Ayu-Dag and the Black Sea, of course. In clear weather the rotunda can be seen from Gurzuf.
